However, solicitor Peter Lawson explained that the later opening hour would only be used for these events, known as Bounce Bingo.
The non-minor variation to the licence applied for included adding dance, films and comedy nights to activities that can take place at the venue.
Mr Lawson explained to members that it was part of a national strategy by the company to “increase the interest in bingo to a younger generation”.
He added, however, that it was important for councillors to remember that “bingo remains the primary activity”.
“Don’t get the misapprehension that it’s turning into a nightclub or anything like that – it remains primarily a bingo event, it’s just adding some additional elements to the traditional game of bingo,” he told the board, at its meeting on Wednesday.
On nights where special events are not taking place the bar hours will remain the same.
Licensing board convener Robert Bissett said it “sounds like it would be a good night” and as there were no objections from anyone he was minded to grant the application.
Mr Lawson told the board he hoped to see everyone there to “wave your daubers in the air and laugh along to the comedians”.
